While Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga is probable
to play tonight against the Philadelphia Eagles despite a shoulder injury,
cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick will miss another game as he continues to recover
from a concussion.
Maualuga was a full participant during Monday’s practice but
he was limited by his shoulder injury on Tuesday. However, the linebacker was
able to return and participate fully on Wednesday and the team expects to have
him tonight against the Eagles.
Maualuga is among five Bengals players listed as probable to
play tonight, also including offensive lineman Clint Boling (illness),
linebackers Vontaze Burflict (shoulder) and Dan Skuta (back) and defensive
lineman Carlos Dunlap (calf).
Kirkpatrick was able to practice fully Monday, but was
sidelined through the remainder of the week due to his head injury. He’s the
only player ruled out for the Bengals, though kicker Mike Nugent (calf) and
running back Cedric Peerman (ankle) are doubtful to suit up.
